The dual-core behemoths meet the new contender: the HTC Sensation 4G. Does it have the technical guts and software polish to win the dual-coreathon kicked off by the T-Mobile G2x and Motorola Atrix 4G?…

I am from Samsung Korea, specifically the factory for AMOLED. And we are in the prototype of the next screen for the super phone (not smart phone). This Super Phone will be a 3D capable phone sporting a 4.5 Ultra AMOLED. Ultra AMOLED is: a very thin flexible screen with 640x960 resolutions. It has a Light absorbing technology in which the more it is exposed to direct sunlight, the more it is very readable (Mirasol display?), and it has 900 nits of brightness but lesser battery consumption. The screen is still in prototype but it will surely be the BEST BEAST!

Ultra AMOLED, do you have any proof? I wouldn't be surprised if Samsung goes with that name, sounds pretty exciting, but i'd love to see hard evidence

As far as I know LG Optimus 2X is the king of Quadrant right now. With stock ROM it can score up to 2800 points, with custon ROM up to 3300 points @ 1 GHz and 4400 points @ 1.5 GHz.

I think, you should add to their own price to your comparison list.

ok i have to say that i really didnt know what to buy before London HTC Convention(its was amazing there :))

Samy has probably best processor and display but i dont like theire version of OSs and it lacks any kind better sorts of materials,it looks cheap,plastic,its full of debris in no time and i actually dont think that uberthickness is ergonomic..
LG with tegra is quite nice but well...not that impressive in specs of feeling
on the other hand HTC Sensation,while not as powerful in hardware like others competitors and with only qHD(lol..only),is well built,made of impressive Al unibody and soft touch antibacterial plastic, phone has really good grip in hands, and i think new sense,while really memory hard, gives you one of the best looking experience in Android..

I don't know which superphone will be my next phone yet. But I bet were all in agreement on one thing, this will be the last for a very long time.

i personaly would rather have a 2 megapixel FFC in exchange for not having tap to focus. i have also seen Super amoled plus next to the qHD on the atrix and think the SA+ is much better. better contrast and looks better in direct sunlight. so i am leaning torward the SGS2. however, i LOVE HTC sense 3.0. TouchWiz 4.0 does look appealing though unlike previous versions. i think i will go with the SGS2. especially since it will be a 1.2 ghz dual-core processor instead of 1 ghz dual-core processor.

If the HTC SEnsation is the best threat for the SGS2, then Sammy will have no problem. :)

Okay guys ..I understand that the HTC sensation will be out soon..but will it have all the same external features as the G2x phone . I wanted to get the G2x but Im use to Htc format.I can wait to the summer if the HTC will be better but I just dont know, plus I normally use my phone for everything it has to offer so that needs to be taken into consideration!

The Sensation's HD stereo soround sound should have been included in the specs list as well as its durrable structered design which is what contributes to its wieght...

What about the EVO 3D? that thing should give the GS2 some competition. Granted it is also an HTC device.

Your r correct about the S2 smashing all competitors on bench mark..by good measures actually..another thing that no one is mentioning.. The sensation only has 1gb of internal memory while the S2 AND S1 have 16gb.. Although they both are expandable to 32 gb, the internal memory is what software & other apps typically install to..there for, the sensation might start off nice & snappy but the S2 will show longevity because the more u fill any phones internal memory, the more it lags & slows down.. Sensation is nice but the s2 is simply a better phone..

Better processor, ram, & tho the sense has better res.. Amoled plus still looks better..thanx

Samsung Galaxy S2 is the s**tiest phone I ve ever come acrosss .
I simply feel like I ve paid 30k for a stupid s**t plastic toy.
As far as a hardware and benchmarks are concerned it might be doing well but (Whats the point putting so much power in it and still doing nothing with that UI except some s**t and some good tweaks)which actually doesnt reflect while using it. Like I mean come on every dual core processored android out there is definately smooth and it always feels nice to have something in hand that will make you feel that you have got wat u paid for.
But SGS 2 is not that thing.Freakin cheap plastic body , suckk all built quality , and practically speakin I dont find much use of that stupid Super Amoled + 's brightness(Although the sharpness and all is BEST) as I mostly use all my phones at home or when I am at a place where I can sit and enjoy it quietly.
Apart from that Bluetooth 3.0 n all is simply bulls**t point to classify phones on basis of because having an only phone with bluetooth 3.0 what the hell on earth do u think is it going to take you on a flyer or something ???
All these spec sheets and heavy numbers are utterly useless when it comes to everyday use.They are only goood enough for boasting about your phone .What ultimately matters is your use of phone.
-Is the given hardware of your phone enough for the regular usability of the phone
which may be gaming, social networking, etc etc according to personal needs.
-Does your phone practically suite your personal needs rather than just showing off
some crapppyyy no.s.
-The built quality of the phone matters too (At least matters to me.)
-I dont want to pay 30 grands just because it has a good screen and shows some
good no.s on the web all over which then might just be a few more than its
-How much variety of the provided functions of the phone and OS can u handle.(People end up buying 30k phones and will use it only for listening to music and makin calls and not even text.*STUPIDS*)
-Feel of the phone. Does your phone feel Rich in hands when u hold it ?My SGS 2 definately does not. It feels like some CHINA phone.Your phone should feel like you have paid enough to get a good product fitting your needs and has good built quality
. feels solid , feels rich , makes you fall in love with it the more you use it.
-What is the point of providing bloody 1gb ram if ur DUMB UI and OS does not even use 512 MB of it.(Company boasting their own phone)
Its been only a week since I have got the phone and have already got
bored feels like simply useless junk of piece occupying space in my drawer.In day - day routine my Moto Defy(Motoblur) also does all the daily routine things that SGS 2 might have done for me except for some high end games. But hey single core vs dual
core not a comparison so forget that part.
Gonna Buy Atrix and never ever Samsung again which is sells products on some fake basis .
